Australian river on fire

The muddy bed of the Condamine River in Queensland is a source of methane gas, and it's easy to light up. Many observers believe that the exceptional presence of this gas is due to fracking operations that are being carried out nearby.

The NSW Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham who made this video is particularly excited,  partly because he almost set himself on fire.
